    I voted 'stay out'. But I suspect when Greater Syria brings their hate on us we will be looking back and regretting our decision to let Greater Syria take over the Middle East. I bet that everyone will blame Obama for letting it happen.

    Unless America plans on staying there for decades, bribing tribes not to kill each other, and forcing the government to not act thuggish, I would have a hard to support military action. If Iraq wants assistance, I would have no issue with America, Canada, Britain, etc. being brokers of peaceful negotiations.

    It is the European neighborhood. Keep Syria and the Fallout their problem and be publicly vocal about this. If countries like Germany won't step up to the plate make sure that everyone knows the dead belong to them.

    It's somebody else's turn. We've paid in blood and treasure for a dozen years. We're done. The only stable area in the whole country is the part controlled by the Kurds. I'm willing to provide them any military assistance they require, but no more American soldiers.

    You say that as if we are not allies with Europe.

    We are allies and not their protectors. They (exclude France and uk) have been free riding long enough and complaining so long about how the USA has done things that their populations think the US is the problem and evil. Let them show us how it works.

    And I agree. That is wy I voted to 'stay out'. I think that most Americans will agree enough is enough.

    But at some point we wil look back and realize that despite the political disasters of Iraq and Afghanistan, we should have nipped Greater Syria in the bud when we had a chance. These folks taking over Iraq are not going to just go away. Unlike the old Al-Qaeda that we come to love to hate this new one as an actual goal that the people in the region can actually get behind. The borders in the middle east were not drawn be the inhabitants they were drawn by the west. They want their own lines to be drawn by themselves. And now there is a movement that has taken up that goal. But the movement is about as bad as it gets. They wont be content with just the middle east.
